I like MAC as an acronym as well, but concerned that "Methodology for Assessing Website Conformity to WCAG 2.0" doesn't have the word "accessibility" in it. (We would then have to explain to people unfamiliar with the WCAG acronym what the website is conforming to.)

For the name, I would like that it is easy to pronounce and include the word accessibility in it. 

Perhaps add the word "accessibility" to change to "Methodology for assessing website Accessibility Conformity to WCAG 2.0" for MAC or MAAC?

Thanks,
Amy

Steve Jobs would (might?) be flattered as well.
